About the event

It's crucial to know your rights under suspension at schools. 

Here is some more context:

  • Students of color and students with disabilities are suspended at higher rates than their peers.
  • In New York City public schools, Black youth represent 50% of suspensions, despite being only 25% of the student population.
  • Even when behavior severity is controlled for, Black and Latinx students are still more likely to face suspension.
  • Suspensions have detrimental effects on academic outcomes, with suspended students being three times as likely to drop out of school.

Join us for a training session to learn about your rights under school suspension policies.
